Trapping Workshops

Women's Trapping Workshop

Women's Trap Camp is an immersive camp taught by women for women! This camp covers everything from trap prep to fur sewing. Students are taught how to safely and ethically use a variety of traps. Instructors equip students with the knowledge of how to use their harvest to the fullest by teaching them fur sewing skills. Wild game recipes are showcased on the game feed. Students round out their hands-on learning experience by practicing fur handling.

Many women thrive in these unique, hands-on, inclusive learning experiences. For more details about Wisconsin's Women's Trap Camp, please contact Jenna Malinowski at

Youth Trap Camp

Our youth camps cater to the learning needs of a younger demographic. Students are kept busy with practicing trap setting and location scouting. Kids are given numerous hands-on experiences in fur handling to build their confidence as a budding trapper. These camps also give the students time to play and enjoy nature. Our youth camps offer great, well-rounded learning experiences for a wide range of ages. Kids enjoy learning alongside a group of their peers in the great outdoors!
